LAFAYETTE — Today, October 1, 2019, marks two years since Corporal Michael Middlebrook was killed in the line of duty responding to a call for help at a Moss Street convenience store.

His wife Adrienne said on social media that "it still feels unreal." She recounts her final words to her husband before he went to work and the love she has for him that "will never change."

Middlebrook left behind a wife a daughter and two step-daughters.
